Ridgeline are proud to have retained the cup for best in Community Gardens section of Reading in Bloom. But that's not all: we also received the Banksian Medal presented by the RHS and awarded by the Reading in Bloom Committee for the largest number of points in the whole of the horticultural classes.
A big thank you to all who took part in this years Harvest Fete on Sunday 17th September. We didn’t make a detailed count, but around 300 people came during the afternoon. It was a huge success and we raised almost £1500 towards running the Ridgeline Therapeutic Garden.
The weather was pretty good throughout the long day, although a brisk shower about 3pm made everyone glad we had plenty of gazebos, and the tea room with cake and beverages.
As well as the established favourites, there were extra attractions this year. The excellent 4 Bones trombone quartet entertained us for an hour, and the multi-cultural gardening group brought a flavour of Nepal to East Reading. The community apple crushers from Wokingham provided added interest, plus a half share of their donations, and our own Ridgeline Volunteer Craft Group showed their creative flair.
Sincere thanks for the hard work by our volunteers that helped make this year’s Harvest another huge success!
